Israel is not just a country, it’s a feeling, it’s the passion of the people, it’s each stone and ridge in the home of all Jews. The hike through the Golan Heights was a journey through time back to simplicity, peacefulness, and adventure. The Bedouin experience incorporated a delicious authentic feast on mats with our hands, an old fashioned bon fire filled with all the classic songs, and sleeping on mats. The morning began with a rooster call followed by a genuine breakfast of champions. It was the first time for most of us to ride camels through the Negev Desert and a view that cannot be described in words. The ascend up the Ein Uvdat consisted mainly of man-made steps and ladders. It was shorter than the first hike, yet provided a different perspective of the scenery. As we drive to learn more about the children of Israel, we cannot wait for another unique experience.
